People are generally curious about the ways of making money online. Here, I would like to emphasize on making a stable income through SEO. In SEO, there is a tough competition and the reality is that you can’t take a website or business to the top of the search engine or you can’t force it to stay at that position for a long time with the large number of search engine updates, refreshes and changes rolling out every now and then. Also, rankings are a slow and steady process. Clients always want fast results and they are least concerned about process involved and updates from search engines. Its very hard to meet their requirements. So, you can take in low competition keywords into account and search for long tailed keywords to rank the websites. So, before trying to plunge into doing these things, the basic requirements that will make you stand apart from the alarming number of companies providing these services are:1. Professional Email use:At first, a brand name can always be recognized when there is a professional email used for emailing. It is because every time a person or a client mails to you, they can recognize you by the unique “@youwebsite.com” email ID. The problem when there is no such professional set up is that people just see it as another Gmail, Hotmail or yahoo account. It just lessens the professionalism of your service.2. Professional phone numbers:The use of Skype voice call or Google voice is just another method of service which people may not term as professional. Also, if Google voice tries to connect you when there is someone connecting you, the person would hang up. You can just take up a plan from the toll free number providers for a local and another 800 number which can make you sound more professional. You can also use those numbers by connecting your headset to laptops or a phone. Also, you can update the numbers in your website and ask them to register to get a free consultation from you. So, its better to contact a trusted service provider and take up professional phone numbers.3. Logo as a business identityYou may be an amateur in Photoshop and you may have loads of pictures in Google relating to your business but what makes you unique is a logo specially designed professionally for your company. There are a lot of marketers in different freelancing websites who can be contacted for logo designing with a minimal price.4. Portal: Professional designed well optimized attractive website:At last, as suggested by me before, you can have a website of your own where all your services can be featured in the best possible way. The content inside the website should be such that a person reading that gets a strong feeling of call to action. Design in such a way that the phone numbers and other important are visible on every page.5. Payment Gateway integration:PayPal can be used as an option when it comes to payment gateways. You can have an “order now” button on the pricing pages of your website and integrate PayPal with it. Anyone who feels like ordering can click and pay through your PayPal ID. 2checkout is also another great option to integrate as a payment gateway in the website.6. Invoicing clients:You can literally mail the clients with your invoice details in a WORD file but don’t you think that sounds a bit odd?. Freshbooks.com is another great service provider in terms of invoicing clients. They allow free up to 3 clients but you can go pro if your client base is big. You can get more information from their website and get started. The invoice can also have a logo and your website name which makes it more professional and you don’t need to take care of that when you are with freshbooks.7. Outsourcing:This is just an option if you are not enough experienced in providing good services to the clients. Also, if you are too lazy to do actual work, you can just bring in clients and outsource it to good service providers. You can just sit back and manage everything to just keep the profits.8. Getting clients: The last and important stepYou may wonder about getting a place to start searching for clients. Google will help you as a starter and there are many ways in which you can get in touch with clients which will be discussed here:A. Search for a particular niche where you want to find clients. You will see that a lot of results appear in the first page of Google. Also, you can find ads at the top of the search results. Those ads are generally paid ones which are featured by spending money. You can note down the links and the contact information f those owners. They would be the first from where you may need to start. They are potential clients because they have some budget for marketing and are still not in the first page of Google. You can see that they are pouring a lot of money on worthless PPC campaigns and they can be easily convinced to take up an offer from you.B. Fax or Email: This is another popular method where you can reach to a mass media at once. You will just have to collect the email addresses of the clients who are potential customers in your niche. They may like to reach you when they see your offer regarding the improvement of their sales. The trick is that you will have to write a very convincing mail in order to convert the lead into a sale. You can also purchase the leads from a good provider and blast emails in bulk with a free software.C. Cold calling: This is just advancement in terms of sending mails. In the mailing method, you send a mail to the client that may be read or unread by the client. If you are making a call to convince the client about your service, then it’s more authentic and the client is sure that you are a real person than just a business promoter. You should not be affected from rejections by the client as they would approve once you place a good bid and provide good service. Another important aspect to keep in mind is that you should be comfortable and confident enough to talk to the client about your services or else there would be no benefits.
